Attention! Personal protective equipment (PPE) is important whether you are at work or at home. What happens when you cut your hands doing yard work at home and have to get stiches?? Shouldn’t you have been wearing gloves??

A lot of injuries can be prevented by simply wearing proper PPE. Although this alert is directed to ATD company policy, consider using these same tactics at home. You never know what could happen. Always be as safe as you can be!

Safety Alert! Aerial Lifts!

June 6, 2017 | By: ATD

Attention all! Aerial lifts (boom & scissor) are great machines to utilize, but can be very dangerous when they are used incorrectly. Check out this safety alert on lifts and remember this information whenever you are working in, or around a lift. Just because you are not in/operating the lift, does not mean it is not still a hazard and risk to your safety.

Although most of you do not use these at home……….. lift safety is still important to know. Construction is going on everywhere and you never know when/where you may be exposed! Workers do drive them out into the street quite often, and not everyone is as safety conscious as you!
